Forum: forums Subject: Phil missing from Jerry Tribute

I've read & heard that Phil did not perform at the Jerry tribute show because he and Bobby are no longer getting along. Does anyone know anything about this?

Regardless, it seems that Phil should loosen his skirt a little. This show was, arguably, very important to many Deadheads, the larger community and to the history of the band itself (again this is my opinion here). While Phil seems to do an excellent job of defending the Grateful Dead's legacy, he also seems to make some really boneheaded decisions sometimes, e.g. not playing at the Tribute Show and some of the statements he made on 60 Minutes a little while back.

I just don't understand why Phil would decide to put his personal feelings about an argument before the band and the music ... Honestly, the more I think about it the more it breaks my heart ... I thought it would pass as time ticked by, but the more time that passes the more it hurts ...

To clarify, given the more general Internet Archive forum to which this is posted, this topic is about members of the band the Grateful Dead, some of whose shows are available in the Live Music Archive collection here.

Phil wasn't singing too much at this point in the band's history ... that's really not along the lines of what I'm discussing ...

although the war is serious, this forum really is fun. Thats why I'm married to a mushroom, I'm a fungi.
The higher I get, the more conspiracies that fester in me. Again, Phil & Bob are fine friends. But wasn't that National Anthem great??? the Vietnam Vets Color guard and to honor America! great stuff! but what IS Vince Welnick putting in his jacket pocket?

Maybe Phil had personal family business. Like Montana not being at the Stuporbowl and (shhhhhhh...)maybe not!
hey now, just ignore my post and float around it!

i agree - not all artists and sport figures can appear at every single event where the fan base would assume they would appear. people do have lives outside of thier "job." I truly believe Phil when he states that he and Bobby are great friends. It is just that, like my life, nobody can make every appearance when one has children and/or contractual obligations that interfere with what they would like to be able to do. Although, in the case of Montana - i have met and talked with the guy - and he is a d*ick - no kidding involved. i have never met a more self-rigtheous egotist in my life (and i've met a few). Comparing him to Brady is pathetic. Brady is the anti-Montana (at least so far in his career).

to be honest!! - as pathetic as it may sound - i absolutely love the direwolf off of Reckoning. hate to site a commercial release, but that one just gets me :) such a great acoustic set. other than that, my favorite versions are me playin it acoustic with a couple of friends with couple of beers - such a great song singing with a couple of buddies. one of my favorite dead tunes.

your fav????

Phil said, in a statement, that his kid was moving into his dorm the day of the show. He said his family came first. Sorry if this is old news.

indeed! thanks for the news also, I'm sure we'll see The Dead together again and hopefully with Steve Kimock (now there might be some bad vibes...) hopefully he will return to Maggies Farm
